Open System Preferences and go to the Sharing pane and you will see "locala8bbcf155bac" is there as your Computer Name. Just change it to whatever you want and the change will be reflected in Terminal.

Odd... Terminal for me mirrors whatever is in that computer name section in Sharing. Are you by chance on a VPN or logged in remotely where it might be picking up another computer name from the network?
